    Hi guys

    I am rather concerned about my two purple fire fish. They have a burrow under a rock in the tank that they used to sleep in. But they have not come out for the last 3 days.

    I have had them for about 4 weeks and they were healthy and eating very well. I can see their tails every now and then so they are moving around in there but have not come out to eat in 3 days.

    Is this something to be concerned about? All my other fish are healthy and eating.

    Do you have other fish that might be bullying them?

    No all my fish have been getting along great. I have never noticed any fish being aggressive.

    Ok, I am yet to see them feed since Sunday. I am also going away this weekend, so will not be able to check on them.
